A high-frequency part of the acoustic noise spectrum excited by laser-driven cavitation in liquid is investigated theoretically. It is assumed that the liquid is inviscid and compressible and the surface tension may be neglected. The specific heat ratio is taken to be 5/3. It is shown that, in the first approximation, the spectral density of the acoustic energy emitted by a cavity explosion varies as the -4/7 power of the frequency and asymptotically decreases by ∼ 3.4 dB/octave.
